Being a college student and also a VW enthusiast, the mk3 jetta 2.0 has worked out great for me. It has room for all the crap that i have to carry around when i move in and move out, room for my freinds, a classy looking interior (especially for a 96) and its good on gas and fun to drive and mod.
But as far as making power goes its just not cutting it and for the effort in a vr6 or 1.8t swap i still have dents and dings and drum brakes etc etc etc.
I was planning on getting a loan and buying a 20th AE GTI (black magic pearl) when i graduated college, but also the idea of a 98ish audi S4 is also appealling. I need something professional yet something i can mod and be fast in. I think the s4 has my vote, whats everyone else think ?

I must say the WRX has been calling me lately. The STi is out of my price range but the regular WRX looks like it can be had pretty reasonable these days.

I'd say a lot of it is what you can afford at that particular moment in your life. I would love an R32, and since I just totaled my 99 GTI VR6, now would theoretically be the time to go ahead and get one. However, I can't drop close to 30 grand on anything right now, so I'm buying another Mk3 VR6...

I am going to Do either an MK4 Konigseeder widebody GTi next or an S4 Avant. Those are my next addictions...Probably after next year...
2005 Red Sled is finished.

and about the S4 http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif , they are EXTREMELY unrealiable. turbos break ALL the time, it costs 3-6k for reparing the whole set up
, a 20th AE 1.8t would be much more cost effective, lower miles, and still very fast. plus its a VW

If I'm rich I'll get a S4. If I'm semi rich I would get either a Sti or EVO. Sorry R32 and more other mk4 cars is too fat for my taste. When VW comes out with a light 4WD car then will I consider buying a new VW.
